This is Pentecost Sunday…... and the liturgical color is red …. The color representing …...the presence of the Holy Spirit.

“Pentecost” … designates … the 50th day … after Passover

Pentecost is a Jewish Feast Day……. known as …the Feast of Weeks … or the … Feast of Harvest.

It was on this day, …. that the Holy Spirit … was poured out … on 120 Followers … of the Christ. (Acts 1:15)

It was on this day … that the Church was born.

Born in a Blaze of Glory… In A Blaze… of Fire.

Experiencing Pentecost … the coming of the Holy Spirit into one’s life… it is clearly … one of the great experiences … for any disciple … of Jesus.

However, … For some … Any Sermon … or discussion … about the Holy Spirit … seems to create a spirit of … anxiety.

The idea … of God filling a person with His Spirit, … makes them feel … a little uneasy.

And some feel uncomfortable … discussing anything … having to do with … the supernatural.

It all sounds too mystical, … to other worldly.

For others, … such discussion brings forth a feeling of culpability … or shame.

They hear of the … miracles, … of the anointing’s with signs and wonders … and question … if they are for our time.

They wonder if God still manifests his gifts here on Earth … they wonder if God still has the ability to heal.

And if they are for our time, … why don't we witness them more often.

And some wonder … if it has to do … with them.

Is there something that … they are missing? (Pause)

I hope for you this day, … that reading and hearing about the Holy Spirit … is a … joy.

For there is no greater experience … than having the Holy Spirit … present … and active … in your life.

There is no greater comfort and companion …than living in the purity, … sanctification … and justification … of the Lord.

A life lived … in the realization … of Pentecost.

A life … yielding … to the guidance … of the Holy Spirit.

[Much of the following is based off a Sermon by Ernie Arnold Titled "Pentecost- Promise, Purity and Power" and I commend it to you].

A life that stands on the truth … of the Holy Spirit …That stands on the Promise … Purity and Power of Pentecost:

(1 Finger) Pentecost is … A Promise Fulfilled

(2 Fingers) Pentecost is … Purity Realized

(3 Fingers) Pentecost is … A Power Possessed.

Beloved …Pentecost … the gift of the Holy Spirit …is a Promise … of the Father … Fulfilled.

God's Word … is replete with passages … addressing the person … of the Holy Spirit.

For instance, … we know … The Spirit is active in creation (Genesis 1:2) and is also active … in the lives of men and women … who the Scriptures inform us … were filled … with the Holy Spirit.

We see that … in the lives of Job (Job 33:4), David (1 Chronicles 28:12; 2 Samuel 23:2), Nehemiah (Nehemiah 9:20), Joseph (Genesis 41:38) and others.

Each of these individuals … received an infilling … of the Holy Spirit, … anointing them for service…. giving them special insight.

Daniel is renowned … as a man full … of God's Holy Spirit (Daniel 4:8-9).

The presence of the Holy Spirit is one of the core themes … in the prophetic writings of Ezekiel (Ezekiel11:19), … Isaiah (Isaiah 44:3) and the prophet Joel (Joel 2:28-29).
